they played against teams with equal defenses to theirs:

The No-Names
The Steel Curtain
The Atkinson/Tatum assassins

All are as historic as the Purple People Eaters. We'll see if the Legion of Boom gets to chisel their name into that stone.

Only the game against the Raiders had any real scoring - a bit by the defense - Go Willie Go! The others were pure defensive struggles between the best defenses of the year...like the one coming up will be, well on one side anyway. The #1 offense rarely wins the super bowl, but the #1 defense has many times.

I was a Steeler fan living in the Bay Area for that one. We were on vacation for the playoff game against the Steelers and my friend was house sitting for us - well we came home to a house decorated with all manner of Raider paraphernalia. I got even by making a 20 foot banner reading :

"California Home of the Vikings fan club" or some such.

And draped it across their garage door at 4am on Super Sunday. The newspaper guy didn't deliver their paper, neighbors soaped their cars, they said they couldn't figure out why all these cars kept honking outside their house, and they got numerous doorbell ditchers. My friends Dad - a Raider insider - was most displeased.

20 degrees with 30mph winds and sideways freezing rain should be just the ticket. Right now they are calling for 60% chance of snow by the 31st. Come on weather!
